Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and I evaluated with 24/18 and just simplified the answer to 4/3. Is that wrong?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\( r^2=18^2+24^2\) \( r^2=900\) \(r=30\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\( sin( \theta) = \large \frac {24}{30}=\frac {4} {5}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the answer is 4/5? Damn, I was way off.
